TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date24 July 1903
DescriptionThe Society has recently been corresponding with Sir Ford North with reference to the payment of his annual subscription. Discusses information given to Harrison by Ford which implies that information the Messrs supplied was inaccurate and misleading. A large number of Fellows still pay £4 per annum, while all those in the special category to which Sir North belongs, namely, that of Privy Councillors, are subject to an annual contribution of the same amount. Shall be glad of an explanation.
